Stemming from questions raised from the first convening of the Arts-Based Learning Group, this workshop asks: How can the experience of moving together inform our interactions with our families, friends, and work relationships? How might “listening” with our bodies serve as playful feedback to illuminate generative listening in our lives? Facilitators, Kristin Barendregt-Ludwig and Ilya Vidrin will lead participants in opportunities to pass fluidly between cognitive and physical spheres, to explore partnered movement as a mode of interactive, dialogic improvisation.
Informed by and translating the work of Otto Scharmer and Christina Foster we will explore focusing your attention to modes of interaction specifically designed to support and encourage empathetic and generative dialogue, as well as reflect both kinesthetically and verbally on our responses to deeper forms of interaction.
The facilitators of this learning lab aim to better understand the efficacy of our kinesthetic model as well as to identify potential skill sets underlying empathy and a group’s capacity to move into the emergence of generative listening. The insights and findings from this laboratory will contribute to the facilitators’ development of a method of ongoing practice to promote meaningful and intentional connection.
The learning lab will include exercises that range from individual, partnered, and whole group interaction. Participants should be open and willing to do physical movement, though no dance or somatic background necessary.
Arrive by 5:30PM for a light meal (pizza and salad) and networking, followed by the learning lab.
